Though I am like a wineskin in the smoke, I do not forget1 your decrees.
How long2 must your servant wait? When will you punish my persecutors?385
The arrogant4 dig pitfalls5 for me, contrary to your law.
All your commands are trustworthy;6 help me,7 for men persecute me8 without cause.987
They almost wiped me from the earth, but I have not forsaken10 your precepts.
Preserve my life11 according to your love,12 and I will obey the statutes13 of your mouth.
Your word, O LORD, is eternal;14 it stands firm in the heavens.
Your faithfulness15 continues through all generations;16 you established the earth, and it endures.1791
Your laws endure18 to this day, for all things serve you.1992
If your law had not been my delight,20 I would have perished in my affliction.2193
I will never forget22 your precepts, for by them you have preserved my life.23
